Are you free September 15-25? Do you happen to be a wealthy John Legend super fan with time on your hands? Then this trip is just for you – and up to 49 of your close friends. The Four Seasons Private Jet debuted last year to much acclaim. The move to convert a regular Boeing 757 into an ultra-luxe, branded hotel jet stole headlines the world over, and now the hotel company is putting it to good use.
The latest itinerary is, dare we say, legendary, and stops off at six destinations over 11 days, completely curated by Grammy-winning recording artist John Legend. The 36-year-old selected five cultural hot spots for what Four Seasons describes as the ultimate insider adventure. Legend himself sums it up by saying: “All the things that we’re going to do—the music, food and wine—they’re all the kinds of things that I do, not just on vacation, but all through my life. These are things that I think about and care about. So [The Legend Experience] is truly inspired by my own passions.”
The full experience will cost a total of $120,000 (whereas a single element is a more affordable $11,000) and will take you from Napa Valley to New York, Paris, London, Milan and Lake Como. The 11-day odyssey includes indulgent meals prepared by leading chefs, wine tasting with world-class sommeliers and, of course, an intimate concert with “the Legend”.Travelers will visit six “cultural meccas” with a different focus each day.
Here are some of the things to expect:
• Meetings with leaders in technology and education in Silicon Valley
• An intimate John Legend concert in Napa Valley
• Breakfast with the chairman of Credit Suisse and a private tour of the Studio Museum of Harlem with Director and Chief Curator Thelma Golden in New York City
• A private tasting in the legendary Four Seasons Hotel George V wine cellar in Paris
• An exclusive tour of Aston Martin with Head of Design Marek Reichman in London
• Lake Como tour on Ferretti Riva speedboats and an exclusive tour of the Armani Museum in Milan
“The first day of the trip is in Napa Valley and includes a visit to Raymond Vineyards, where I’m going to launch my new wine called the LVE Collection [Legend Vineyard Exclusive],” explained Legend. “It’ll be a chance for everybody attending the event to get to taste that before anyone else in the world will,” he added.
The luxury doesn’t pause in between cities, thanks to the 757’s custom interior, leather flatbed seats, Bose electronics, Bulgari amenities and Mongolian cashmere blankets. But you’re probably wondering whether John Legend can be convinced to join the party at 30,000 feet? “I’ll be there on several of the jet trips and in several of the cities. I won’t be there every single day, but I will be there most of the trip. I will definitely be on the airplane and talking to everyone and be part of the trip,” said the superstar singer.
